BEAD (n.) at Dictionary.com
mid-14c., bede "prayer bead," from O.E. gebed "prayer," with intensive or collective prefix *ge- + P.Gmc. *bidjan "to pray, entreat" (cf. M.Du. bede, O.H.G. beta, Ger. bitte, Goth. bida "prayer, request"), "to ask, pray." Shift in meaning came via beads threaded on a string to count prayers, and in phrases like to bid one's beads, to count one's beads. German cognate Bitte is the usual word for conversational request "please." Also related to bid (O.E. biddan) and Goth. bidjan "to ask, pray" or to "bede one farewell".

The word ‘rudraksha’ is two Sanskrit words ‘Rudra’, a synonym for Lord Shiva, and ‘aksha’, meaning "eyes". The botanical name of the plant is 'ELAEOCARPUS GRANITRUS'. These trees grow only in the peaks of Himalayas of India and Nepal. The Rudraksha beads contain 50.031% Carbon, 30.53% Oxygen, 17.897% Hydrogen, 0.95% Nitrogen and trace elements.

It is said that the seed pods of Rudraksha contains the secrets of the entire evolution of the cosmos within it.

Rudraksha has been found to boost the confidence, courage and inner strength of the wearer significantly. When a person has traumatic shock or just plain bad habits, the body picks up samskaras. When regularly wearing Rudraksha, it becomes part of body and the seed begins the healing. Rudraksha brings grace in life. Generally after 40 days of wearing, one can feel the the changes in him or herself and attitude towards life but some changes are observed immediately.

The Rudraksha bead is a seed pod and being organic, varies in size. The beading hole running through it occurs naturally. Each seed pod forms up to 21 vertical lines running down its surface, like the longitude lines on a globe or sections of an orange. Each section contains a tiny seed inside of this Rudraksha pod. It is the whole pod with its sections that is the natural, Sacred Rudraksha bead. These sections are known as mukhi, or faces (facets), and are integral natural formations of the pod. Seeds with no line or one vertical line are known as ekh-mukhi (one facet); those with two lines are doh-mukhi (two facets), and so on. The Rudrakshas with rare larger number of mukhi are on the market in the several hundreds of dollars with or without any setting for wearing it – they are available as remedy for astrological influences as per recommended by a professional Vedic Jyotish Astrologer.

Panch Mukhi (5 faces) Rudraksha is said to be beneficial to anyone. Representing the planet Jupiter – Guru planet, this type of Rudraksha is the most popularly found and said to bring luck and happiness besides the healing and stabilizing properties below. If you feel affinity to this piece, with positive attitude, you will be especially fortunate by quick noticeable results in its wearing.

Rudraksha interacts with sentient beings by keeping it close to the skin - the natural process of positive impaction on central nervous system when connecting with nature’s healing properties bringing balance in physiology. Constant contact with Rudraksha brings one to Alpha state of mind - a state where the heart beat, breathing, blood circulation, function of endocrine glands, activity of neurons & neurotransmitters are normalized. The Rudraksha can help balance the vital chakras of the human body. Ancient Indian medical texts state that the Rudraksha prevents aging and can prolong life. Rudraksha is said to Belong to Lord Shiva. Those who wear Rudraksha are free from all fears as your Rudraksha resonates tranquility, peace and bliss.

Researches have shown that Rudraksha beads have electromagnetic and accupressural property known as Piezoelectricity. A piezoelectric material when subjected to electric potential undergoes reformation in molecular level and develops a charge equal in potential but opposite in polarity. There is a constant bio-electrical field developed throughout the body. Rudraksha are worn around the thymus area and instantly catches this electric potential, developing an electromagnetic potential of same intensity but opposite in polarity (positive or negative). This is also the reason why Rudraksha is called as Elaeocarpus - meaning plants with Electrical Properties.

On seeing such miraculous results by just wearing Rudraksha beads, Hindus in the Himalayas in India and Nepal began worship of Rudraksha seed pods as sacred and fashioned them into beads to be used for Japa Mala which after prayers are chanted are worn. Yogis since ancient times are capable of spectacular ability of mind control and control of voluntary & involuntary mechanisms of the body. Many attribute this power to Rudraksha beads to a major extent.

Can Rudraksha be worn by all people or only followers of the Sanatana Dharama? Rudraksha can be worn by all people of any religion, sex, caste as Sun, Moon, Rivers, Plants have no religion. Rudraksha is Nature itself at work. Vedas call Nature and even Science same as G-d.
